Just Because - Pals Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the first Pals Blog Hop of 2013! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to new Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Spring Catalog. We hope you find inspiration and ideas for using the new stamps, papers and accessories.

You should have just left stop number 4 on the Pals Hop -Peggy Noe at prettypapercards.com . If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Today's card is chocked full of new products from the Spring Catalog!
  • Tea Lace Paper Doilies (129399) - Delicate and dainty. Stamp, color them with ink or just leave them plain.
  • Creped Filter Paper (129393) - The look of tissue paper with the strength of card stock. Fun to stamp, dye, ink, punch or stitch. I made the flower by punching 5 - 1-1/4" Scallop Circles (127811), layered them on top of each other, inserted a brad in the center and scrunched each layer. Super simple!
  • Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (129378) - Fun, fab honeycomb design.
  • Pool Party Stampin' Emboss Powder (129398) - Dive into a glossy Pool Party design.
Plus, I used a couple products from Sale-A-Bration. Sale-A-Bration is an annual party (January 22 - March 22) with loads of free products! This year's party is better then ever. Stampin' Up! is celebrating their 25-year anniversary! Stay tuned for more information on this years Sale-A-Bration later this month.
  • Vintage Verses Stamp Set
  • Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack
